Know Your Routesetter: Denis Firstov, setter for Summit Gyms

We're steadily making our way through all the routesetters! This week we talked to Denis Firstov, another one of the tall guys on our routesetting team (and always with a pretty great  haircut!) Denis is a pretty busy guy, balancing full-time routesetting with coaching ClimbFit, being enlisted in the National Guard as well as traveling quite a bit in pursuit of adventure, but I snagged him for a few minutes for this post.

The guy responsible for everything set by "JC," Jon was the first routesetter to take part in our gym's routesetter intership program, and then become a full-time member of our setting crew! Not that it's a contest but he might be the tallest member of our setting crew. Not that his setting reflects that, cuz Jon is a versatile setter, who likes to set anything, as long as it gets people thinking! He's a super friendly guy, so here's a little bit more about the routesetter that is responsible for our setting crew's recent skateboarding obsession.
